, a former advisor to president clinton. doug, you first. what changed after the debate for the democrats. >> what changed the inhe have tiblty of president obama and showing the polls and reuters and rasmussen showing a close race or even a slight romney advantage, as in the rasmussen poll, but bottom line, president obama has got to get back to his core message of fiscal discipline and social compassion. and the governor romney is is an out of the mainstream extremist, he didn't deliver that on tuesday and he lost as a result. >> jamie: angela, what's the road map for republicans over the next 30 days. >> status quo. mitt romney, no question, that debate was a game changer, but jamie, a debate doesn't win an election, it sets the tone. he has to keep performing, keep talking about what he will do to create a better america and are you better off than you were four years ago. and we have all of these poll numbers dealing with swing states, but the polls that count, would you go to the poll and vote and i believe that people are going to vote their wallets, not going to vote their conscie
now, doug schoen and pat caddell, also a fox news contributor and former pollster for jimmy carter. i want to start with these ohio numbers because, because there was also a poll out that said it was tied at 47, and ppp, a democratic-leaning firm, released a poll showing obama up just one point in ohio. do you believe that it's a tied race in ohio, doug? >> i do. i think the fox news poll last week had it three, and i think pat and i both believe that the momentum in the race, the clear momentum is moving to mitt romney, and ohio which is probably both a bellwether and the key to the election, has been moving slowly, but it's moved about five or six points in the last week or so, and bottom line that makes this race dead even with all the momentum in governor romney's direction. megyn: the ppp poll that showed the president up by just one in ohio apparently had a sampling, a democrat sampling advantage of 8%, and earlier it was a democratic advantage of four. so the president is showing, you know, that he's doing worse even with more democrats in the sample in the tate of ohio, pat. w

caddell, fox news contributor and former pollster for jimmy carter, and doug schoen, a fox news contributor and former pollster for bill clinton. gentleman, is the race, doug, basically tied? >>doug: i believe so. but there is a "but." that is that the movement has been to governor romney. some of the more left-wing commentators have tried to suggest that there was a blip up for president obama after the debate. according to some of the polls, he won that. but, looking at all the polls, including the state polls, we are seeing the movement to the governor is clear. >>gregg: i am glad you brought up gallup and rasmussen. here is rasmussen, with romney up by to points and look at gallup tracking poll, pat, romney is up, as of 1:00 o'clock this afternoon, romney is up plus seven points. is that gallup poll accurate? or an outliar? >> i think it is an outliar because i have a problem with the seven-day seven day rollings because you are putting in 350 interviews which is margin of error at 15 points and each day you take one out. however, obama is -- i take gallup and rasmussen and
lindsay sandoval, doug patch, kate therrity and ryan stanley. guys, tell me you're getting extra credit for this. no? let's start with the obvious question. who debated better and why? lindsay, why don't we start with you. >> i think we knew that joe biden had a lot of expectations for this debate and i think he articulated how obama and his policies will help the middle class and how they'll defend medicare and social security. >> doug? >> i felt as though joe biden definitely had much more of an emotional appeal, but i think paul ryan was definitely more call and stated the facts much better than joe biden did. >> kate, what do you think? >> i think both spoke to the voters that they needed to speak to and i think that the lasting effect from biden's talking points from what he was saying will be stronger than to rain's. >> ryan? >> i think joe biden absolutely -- ryan's. >> ryan? >> i think joe biden absolutely stole the debate tonight. i think it resonates with middle class families. they like to see somebody is fighting for them. >> by raising your hand, anybody change their mind h

. doug schoen a democratic strategist, fox news contributor. and also a republican strategist is joining us from the american enterprise institute. doug, vice president biden last week talking about the fact that we basically have unemployment, things are getting better. the president has to address that tonight. >> it is undeniably the case that it is better to be 7.8 than 8. but when you look at discouraged workers, underemployed and unemployed workers this is still a very very weak economy and the administration has yet to come up with a compelling defense of a record that leaves them deeply politically vulnerable tonight. cheryl: i think you gave mark's argument for him. >> i often agree with doug. cheryl: obviously, okay. >> i often agree with doug, and i do agree with him right now. vice president biden was gloating in the debate last week that after 43 months we got it down to 7.8%. but the fact is if you count all the workers who left the workforce, the unemployment rate is really closer to 11%. as you have pointed out, we have had 43 months of this high unemployment. that really

on foreign policy a topic that has already sparked a lot of fireworks. >> joining us now is doug luzader. >> instead of standing on podiums or walking around one another on stage like the last debate we are going to be sitting at the same desk with one another. they are supposed to talk about foreign policy you know how this goes just about anything could come up. the tone tonight may be some what more subdued than we saw during the last debate when things got pretty heated. the president will no doubt try to question mitt rom niece readiness on the world stage. >> people want to know they have a strong steady hand in the oval office. they don't want someone who is reckless and who has been consistently wrong on foreign policy issues as governor romney has. >> romney may try to hit the president on the u.s. consulate attack on libya with questions about what the white house really knew about the attack in those early days. with the new report over the weekend with possible talks between the u.s. and iran over the nuclear program romney will likely question the president's support over is

on campaign insiders, my partner, doug and i talked about this on sunday. i want to actual, we made a case that could be decisive because romney was so far down in the public image. more importantly, you know, sean, all of those numbers are very close. you can't say this -- the numbers have changed from what they were. there is more coming, potentially. more importantly, debates affect how you view the race and the candidate. romney's favorability has soared. he was upside down in favorability. even in the cbs poll, right after the post-pam of uncommitted voters, he went from 30% believing he cared about people to almost 53%, almost doubled it in 90 minutes. that's the movement that we care about. >> sean: listen, nobody's doubting -- i can -- with certainty say obama's going to show up. he's going to be aggressive. he is probably likely to over -- you know, go overboard. >> here's the obama narrative, simply, sean. fiattack governor romney as his campaign has, he drives up his negative and that improves his vote share. what his handlers are saying, you missed opportunity after opportunity

11th this year. doug mckelway joins me live in washington on this. doug, is this the first witness we're going to hear from here? >> reporter: the first witness actually gone on the record, not a anonymous source. a guy came forward to say security was denied there. he is lieutenant colonel andrew word, former head of a special forces team in libya. he told cbs news that his request for beefed up security was rejected in washington. the man who made the call to reject the extra security, undersecretary of state management, patrick kennedy who held the job since 2007. after the attack kennedy privately briefed house and senate staffers told them the attack appeared to be sophisticated involving light and heavy weapons. four days after that briefing, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice took to five different sunday talk shows to say it was not a planned attack. it was another three days after that, before any senior u.s. official publicly stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> americans deserve the truth on what happened. and so i think what you're going
